Spanish Sketches

Gender stereotypes

The multifaceted artist and intellectual Pilar Viviente works through music and bodily expression. For some time her work has focused on the concept of “rodete” (wheel-like coils worn on either side of the head), a popular element of the headdresses worn by Iberian women. Her work for Museari includes two projects: works from the “Spanish Sketches” series, combined with others from the “Rodetes” series (Wheels that are Eyes). This pairing concept has been shown for the first time at Museari.  This professor of Fine Arts from the Universidad Miguel Hernández is a multidisciplinary artist who belongs to the so-called Reflexive Generation (late 80s, early 90s). She has participated in more than one hundred national and international exhibitions. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of museums around the world.
